Re: Plated cup of unknown origin

One more information about this company. The "Silver" company, to be precise LAVORAZIONE ITALIANA ARGENTERIA "SILVER" S.r.l.,   also manufactured solid silver with the mark 45 BO . I have a small tea filter from this company, with a very funny punching. The marks are disguised to...

A watch case

A friend of mine asked me about this punching of a watch case.

I seem to recognize London 1845, but I could not give him an answer when he asked me why there is not the queen's head.
Can anyone tell me?
Thanks

Re: R. Miracoli spoon

The mark is after 1971, so with WW2 the spoon has nothing to do.
The mark of Miracoli is 6 MI and I seem to read something else in the diamond.

Re: Is this an (Italian) assay mark?

Never seen such a strange writing.
It does not seem Italian to me, anyway.
Are you sure it's solid silver?

I seem to read 0.900.
The dot has not been used in Italy. It could be Swiss.

Re: Italian silver maker's mark - Naples

The De Luca family still produces bronze and silver cast statues, perhaps with a different mark.

Re: What is the source of this non-American hallmark?

Hi Tamara Since you ask my opinion I will also make a summary of my position 1) Sept 2015 I said I recently found this little tray in the style of eighteenth-century. It’s definitely hand wrought, and, on the back, the plate has some imperfections that would confirm an old execution. In the books th...

Re: What is the source of this non-American hallmark?

Hi Grandmogol
I do not know what you mean by "big money", but a small sugar bowl with these marks has been sold for 2500 euros.
If it is a fake it seems to me a very big money.

Re: What is the source of this non-American hallmark?

Hi Tamara The imagination or bad faith of some "experts" has no boundaries. How can you say "possibly Parma" of the mark under consideration? The eagle of Parma (92 93 94 95) has two heads and has no halo. http://i63.tinypic.com/ve9cmu.jpg None of the eagles used in 1800, in Parm...

Thanks for the photos, but if possible, they should be more in focus to distinguish the details of hand working.

Hello Tamara I understand that the matter is a bit complicated. So "can you explain what you meant when you said that in Sambonet's book there is a drawing and not a picture" Below are some drawings of marks of Milan from Sambonet's book with photos of them beside. You can see that the dra...

Re: What is the source of this non-American hallmark?

The person who has some doubts is me. These doubts derive from the fact that in recent years, in different markets, I have seen no less than a dozen pieces with this mark, while pieces of other Milanese silversmiths of the same period not even one. Now it is possible that Giovan Battista Croff worke...
